god only knows. host: let's go to phone calls. steve, democratic caller. welcome to the conversation. caller: thank you. chunk for -- thank you for c-span. my suggestion is two-fold. one, is that each owner of a gun or each gun rather should have a trigger lock where the lock actually prevents the trigger from being fired and it should be an expensive one not like the kind that's $20 where it doesn't work properly but a certified trigger lock. my second suggestion is that each owner of a gun every two or three years should meet with a psychiatrist or psychologist that would certify that this owner understands the importance of that trigger lock and has to, you know, understand that it should be on every time the owner is not using the gun. guest: having a psychiatrist or psychologist lecture on the importance of a trigger lock may not be the right area for their expertise. my brother was a deputy chief of police for many years, would probably say if someone should do that, it should be law enforcement who probably can send a, shall we say, more effective authority message than a psychologist. look, i'm not an expert on trigger locks. i do k
